And To All A Good Night – Are You Prepared for an Emergency?

We're one week away from Christmas, and feeling rather jolly (I hope). It's good to keep in mind, however, that this is also a time of year when many are unprepared for an emergency situation. We're so caught up in the hustle and bustle of gift giving, family dinners and celebrations, that we tend to forget there can be a change of circumstance that could make the season very unpleasant, and not at all jolly.

This week, I'd like to wish you – All Good Nights, by reminding you to be prepared in case of an emergency. It's always a good idea to brush up on the basics. I hope you find the following article helpful.

 

 

Tips For Emergency Preparedness

Posted in General by Tara Sharp 

Over the last few weeks, we have been sharing valuable information about preventative home maintenance and preparing your home for winter storms. The start of the New Year is a great time to take stock of your emergency kit. It’s a good idea to do this every year in order to replenish and adjust the contents to your families changing needs.

Emergency Kit Basics:

A good place to start when putting together your kit is emergency basics for your family. Keep all items together in a location that is easy to access. Here are some examples of the kinds of things you should consider including in your emergency kit:

  • The general rule is to have at least one gallon of water per person, per day. This is useful for drinking, food preparation, and general hygiene. The Red Cross suggests keeping a two week’s supply of water at your home and three days worth in the case of evacuation.
  • A two-week supply of non-perishable food that is easy-to-prepare. Flashlight and extra batteries
  • Battery-powered or hand-crank radio
  • The following first aid kit supplies (Based on the Red Cross Guidelines)

o   2 absorbent compress dressings (5 x 9 inches)

o   25 adhesive bandages (assorted sizes)

o   1 adhesive cloth tape (10 yards x 1 inch)
